Kotobukiya announced today that the Japanese sci-fi epic Mogiri will be making its North American theatrical debut this fall.
The film stars Keanu Reeves as a British explorer who is sent to the distant world of Mogiri, a fictional planet inhabited by giant steampunk machines that have been around for centuries.
Kotobukan’s original release for the film was a box office success, and now the studio is hoping that the audience will enjoy the film on its home soil.
“Mogiris first theatrical release is a great chance to experience the world of this classic Japanese sci fi film and the characters who made it into the world,” said Kotobukea.
“We are thrilled to be bringing the film to theaters in North America and internationally.”
The film’s official English title is Mogiri: The Golden Age, but Kotobusha says it will be more accurate to call it Mogiri 2.0, with the story and characters returning from the first film.
The movie is set in the year 2020, after a mysterious alien attack has left Mogiri without power, leaving it unable to keep its people alive.
It’s a time when Mogiri’s inhabitants are forced to live in giant machines that can generate heat and electricity for their own use.
“I’m so happy to be able to bring back the Mogiri we all know and love, as we know it today,” said Takashi Nishiguchi, creative director at Kotobuks Tokyo headquarters.
“From the very beginning, I’ve been looking forward to bringing Mogiri to the screen, so it’s been really satisfying to see our fans and friends get excited about seeing Mogiri again.”
The movie stars Keau-Toya Takahashi, John Hurt, and Michael Caine.
Kotoba’s latest movie, A Woman Under the Same Sun, was a big hit on home turf.
The studio plans to release the film in theatres this fall, with a release in theaters in 2019.
The story revolves around a woman who becomes pregnant with her third child.
The child is adopted by the childless couple, and the woman is now the mother of their new daughter.
The girl is a girl who looks like her mother, and is referred to as “Miss A.”
Kotobushi says the film is about a girl named “M” who is in love with her adopted father.
“Miss Y” has her own life and her own problems.
But, Miss A can only be saved by saving Miss Y’s adopted father, who is also a boy.
The first film earned more than $7 million in Japan, and Kotobutaka hopes to continue the franchise with a second film.
“When I was young, I loved playing the role of Miss Y, and it was so fun to be in this world of robots and machines,” said Nishiguchichi.
“Now that I’m older, I’m so excited to be a father and be able play the role again.”
